department of homeland security as the lead for domestic sever security. the fbi also has a key part to play in investigating and preventing cyber attacks. and our intelligence agencies, of course, are focused on this potential threat as well. the state department is trying to forge international consensus on the roles and spots -- roles and responsibilities of nations to help secure cyberspace. the department of defense also has a rule. it is a supporting role, but he is an essential role. bentonite, i want to explain what that means. but first, let me make clear what it does not mean. it does not mean that the department of defense will monitor citizens' personal computers. we're not interested in personal communication or in e-mails or in providing the day-to-day security of private and commercial networks. that is not our goal. that is not our job. that is not our mission. our mission is to defend the nation. we defend, we deter, and, if called upon, we take decisive action to protect our citizens. in the past, we have done so in operations on land, at sea, in the skies and in space

department and fbi and others have that video. the video in california made by individual out there for a period of time also clearly had no direct effect on this attack. it was september 11, the 11th anniversary of the greatest terrorist attack in u.s. history in new york, pennsylvania, and at the pentagon. it was that anniversary that caused an organization aligned with al qaeda to attack and kill our personnel. i deeply appreciate secretary clinton's efforts to cooperate with this investigation. she stepped in and instructed her people to cooperate and they have. additionally, if i have had conversations directly with the secretary and i believe our service together since 2001 in the u.s. congress plays no small part in her recognition of the role we serve on both sides of the dome. today, however, this hearing has been called for the express purpose of examining security failures that led to the benghazi tragedy. safe-haven within the compound, which some state department officials seemed to think could protect the benghazi compound inhabitants, did not work. in retrospect, it c

from a man convicted of viciously slaughtering two fbi agents in south dakota. he murdered them, the agents were wounded, defenseless and lying on the ground. one agent even lifted his hand to shield himself from the barrel of a gun. he stood over him, pulled the trigger and sent a bullet into his skull. this despicable crime was the work of a man the doctor not once released from prison. during another protest, a different cop killer had a statement read calling this giving an american holocaust. "the greatest single act of terrorism to date or not perpetrated by osama bin laden, but by the u.s. military when it dropped atomic bombs on the people of hiroshima and nagasaki." and other speaker -- you get the idea. these kinds of protests, you knew what they were. he participated and led them six years in a row. charging the police with brutality. he hid his past because he knew it would destroy his political future. the local press has to explain why they refuse to investigate and report on his background. i urge you to go on-line and looked at these facts for yourself. i am sure you

could be quickly shared with d.o.d.'s geographic and functional combatant commanders, with dhs, fbi and other agencies in government. we need to see an attack coming in order to defend against that attack. we are looking at ways to strengthen cipher command as well. we must ensure that it has the resources, the authority, the capability required to perform this mission. it must also be able to react quickly to events unfolding in cyberspace and fully integrate cyber into all of the department also plans and activities. finally, the third area is to build stronger partnership. as i have made clear, securing cyberspace is not the sole response ability of the united states military or even the sole responsibility of the united states government. the private-sector, government, military, our allies all share the same local infrastructure. we all share a deep responsibility to protect it. we are deepening cooperation with our closest allies with the goal of sharing that information, that a mighty cheer capabilities, and determining malicious activities -- maximizing sheered capabilities
